with a program for the very beginning -- since the very beginning. he took a chance on main street. we want to take that chance on government. our first higher was in june 2009, and our last was yesterday, the last day before the door closed. we believe the program benefits both sides of main street. the employee, giving them a real job doing real work. 145 people that are working for me are building a free, online digital library of 1 million books which will go to every school in america. it gives them pride. it gives them professional confidence, and gives them a job they can go back to their families with and make a difference in their community in terms of funding, financing, and confidence, and if america does not have the confidence to go forward on one side of wall street, how can we make the decisions that we need to? this is not a handout. this is a hand up, as far as i'm concerned. this program is fantastic. as an employer in an uncertain environment, we did not know what 2009 or 2010 would unfold. we did not know whether the economy was going to improve, stay flat, or continue t
. >> our coverage begins with terry mcsweeney near where the gas main ruptured. terry's going to walk us through what happened. good morning. >> yeah. i've gotta tell you the latest right now is that the san bruno police are moving all the media an additional block away from the scene. a scene that has been declared a crime scene by san bruno police. eric, you were asking me a few minutes ago if it was something more sinister than just making sure that the police can totally control the area. i have no reason to believe it's anything more than wanting to really be in charge of this large, devastated area. just had a couple people walking down the street here, supposed to be starting work at linardi's market. they're told they're not going to be allowed in. at the crime scene, nobody but nobody but law enforcement and firefighters are allowed in. take a look what it was like out here last night. you'll understand some of the grave concern of the san bruno police department. a fireball erupted about 6:15 last night. and according to pg&e, it was caused by a 24-inch gas line breaking. they
1/10th of 1% of g.d.p. >> charlie: what percentage of your g.d.p.? >> the main effort had to be done within our own borders. >> charlie: the economic issue. what did you do when you came to office to try to put chile on a pro growth track? >> chile had 12 years of fat cows from 1986 to 2008. from 1986 to 1998, we had 12 years of fat cows. the economy was growing at 7% per year. we were creating jobs. in that time period, we recovered our democracy which is the natural way of life for the chilean people, but unfortunately starting with the asian crisis in 1998 until last year we went through a lean-cow period and investment went down, job creation capacity went down, so our main goal and our commitment with the country was to restore our ability to restore our ability to create jobs and face problems, and we have been really very successful -- i say we because it's the whole chilean people thar behind this effort. let me make a comparison. last year's growth rate was minus 1.5%, this year will be 5.5%. last year we destroyed 30,000 jobs, this year we will create 300,000 jobs. >> charl
've got the main shut down, so we have to approach the lines to make sure there's no more. >> how confident are you that the main -- major risk of bodily damage and injury, even if there's still gas in those lines, is there still risk? >> all the power has been shut down to the whole area. in fact, half the area of san bruno is shut down. so the risk of that ignition is probably nonexist tanlt right now, but you don't know if a flame or ember, you know, could affect it. so that's why we're cautious. >> any way to know if there are a few, a dozen, several dozen people missing right now? >> i have no information to deny or confirm that. >> is there any way to -- >> that's what it's going to take. >> when do you think that might happen? obviously these homes are smoldering tonight. could it be as soon as tomorrow? >> my hope is we'll get an initial search team through the whole area tonight. i may be optimistic, but by tomorrow we'll have dogs and everything else here to go through. >> the first responders hurt? >> at this point, no report of injury for first responders. >> again, re
